Discovery Algorithms

Discovery algorithms and analytical techniques offered by KnowMiner can roughly be grouped into following categories:

  • Crawling and import: accessing remote repositories to gather and import information which is stored there.
  • Information Retrieval: comprehensive search functionality in content and metadata including statistical and semantic-based features.
  • Information Extraction: Extraction of structured, semantic information from text, including named entity extraction and disambiguation, part-of-speech tagging, document structure detection, as well as other text transformations.
  • Statistical mining: classification of documents into predetermined categories, grouping related documents into previously unknown categories (clustering), as well as discovery of relationships between concepts.
  • Semantic mining: enrichment, evolution and integration of knowledge repositories and knowledge structures.
  • Information and knowledge visualization: visual analysis of patterns in complex information, explorative navigation and communication of knowledge.
